GroupWise F/B Connector | Quest Web Services

| Quest Web Services

This information applies only if you are configuring Coexistence Manager for GroupWise’s FBC for Outlook 2003 clients, which requires Coexistence Manager for GroupWise’s Autodiscover and EWS for Exchange queries to GroupWise for F/B information. This information does not apply if you are configuring for Outlook 2007 or later clients, with Microsoft’s (not Coexistence Manager for GroupWise’s) Autodiscover and EWS.

Web Service Prefix: The first element of the Autodiscover Url (below) for CMG's Autodiscover web service. The default value is autodiscover, but you can designate an alternate web service prefix for the GroupWise Free/Busy Connector. This field accommodates F/B coexistence with Exchange 2013 or Office 365 (Wave 14 or 15), where the prefix is configurable.
Web Service Host Name: From the Autodiscover Host A Record, this is the Host Name obtained from your DNS configuration entries in an earlier step of the configuration. (See the Configure DNS step of your scenario’s configuration instructions for more information.) This field is prefilled by Coexistence Manager for GroupWise, assuming the Autodiscover service is installed on the same computer as the Coexistence Manager for GroupWise GroupWise Free/Busy Connector service, but the value may be edited for a non-standard configuration.
The Quest Autodiscover Url and Quest EWS Url fields are both filled by Coexistence Manager for GroupWise, derived from the Web Service Prefix and Web Service Host Name values (above), and cannot be changed.
Autodiscover Certificate Wizard: Button to launch the wizard, which automates much of the process of installing the necessary autodiscover certificate for the Free/Busy Connector. (For more information about this wizard, see the web services certificates step of your scenario’s configuration instructions.)
Quest GroupWise Free/Busy Connector Host Name: Prefilled by Coexistence Manager for GroupWise with localhost—the appropriate value for a typical Coexistence Manager for GroupWise configuration. In a typical configuration, the Coexistence Manager for GroupWise EWS subcomponent is installed on the same computer as the Coexistence Manager for GroupWise GroupWise Free/Busy Connector service, so the generic relative value localhost will suffice in this context. If the Coexistence Manager for GroupWise EWS is installed on a different computer, then enter the correct Host Name here.
In either case, Coexistence Manager for GroupWise derives the Endpoint field value from the Host Name value. The Endpoint field value cannot be edited.

 

Appendix: Configuring and troubleshooting the FBC with PowerShell

You may use these PowerShell commands (instead of Coexistence Manager for GroupWise’s Management Console) to configure Coexistence Manager for GroupWise Free/Busy Connector subcomponents and/or troubleshoot F/B Connector issues.

Commands to configure the F/B Connector

Note that for every set-cmg* command listed here, there is a corresponding get-cmg* command that takes no parameters.

Table 7.  

Set-CmgGroupWiseFreeBusyConfig

[[-QuestFreeBusyServiceHostName] <String>]
[[-QuestFreeBusyServicePortNumber] <Int32>]
[[-GroupWiseSoapServiceHostName] <String>]
[[-GroupWiseSoapServicePortNumber] <Int32>]
[[-SmtpDomainMappings] <String[]>]
[[-SessionLoginName] <String>]

TrustedApplicationKey: The key must be entered as a SecureString, so use the following PowerShell command to create the key:
TrustedApplicationName: Name of the Trusted Application.
GroupWiseRetryDelayInSeconds: Number of seconds to wait between retrying F/B requests to GroupWise. This number should be significantly less than the GroupWiseTimeoutInSeconds value.
GroupWiseTimeoutInSeconds: Number of seconds the GroupWise connector service should run before timing out and returning the results it has obtained up until the timeout. Note that Outlook Free/Busy requests timeout at 25 seconds, so this number should be a few seconds less than that.
